you will never be able to block everything that comes up with dodgy pictures, e.g. names and french words :P. My school pays loads for rm safety thing, and I know loads of words that are not blocked. They found a better way of stopping this though, they can see what is on our screen, using the computers in the offices and administrator rooms.

You can have passwords on IE. Just go into i think it is parental controls and say you want the following web sites to be available without a password, but dont put any sites on the list. So as soon as you start IE it will as you for a password.

Or you could just put down sites that you trust on the list of sites you can go to without a password in IE.

Blocking every site would be waaay too tedious

GO to 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 in Internet Explorer and look for parental controls. Your router may or may not do it.

Than type as many dirty words involving porn as you can think of
